Great Stumble from Kostia! The only good thing to come out of the Series of Unfortunate Events (a.k.a. Series of Incredibly Repetitive & Witless Events) books was the involvement of Daniel Handler’s (a.k.a. Lemony Snicket) pal Stephen Merritt (a.k.a. the Magnetic Fields) in the audiobooks. Merritt wrote some Gothic little ditties for inclusion between some of the equally poorly read and poorly written chapters. After three books with the exact same story structure, I found myself zipping through the audio to get to the songs. The last of the series expected next month and a selection of the songs are being released on CD in conjunction. I won’t bother with the former, but I’ll definitely be checking out the latter.

NB: This review is less painful to read than the books!
